Description: American Pharoah (KY) B , C, foaled February 2, 2012 (Pioneerof the Nile - Littleprincessemma, by Yankee Gentleman) won the 10 furlong $2 million Grade I Kentucky Derby May 2, 2015 Churchill Downs. Regular rider Victor Espinoza sent him along the outside of front runners Dortmund and Firing Line down the stretch the first time and around the Clubhouse turn. Carpe Diem raced along the rail in the 4thd spot as the field turned up the back stretch. Firing Line kept moderate pressure on Dortmund while American Pharoah measured that pair as they went into the far turn. Dortmund couldn't keep up with Firing Line midway around the turn and American Pharoah chased after Firing Line, both going extremely wide, as they entered the stretch. Frosted and Danzig Moon were making up ground as Firing Line and American Pharoah battled for the lead, however, American Pharoah went on past nearing the 1/16th marker and went on with it to win by 1 length over firing line Dortmund held on well for the show, 2 lengths further back holding off Frosted by a neck. Danzig Moon was another 3 lengths back in 5th. American Pharoah has reeled off 5 in a row. His domination started in the 7 furlong $200K Grade I Del Mar Futurity September 3, 2014. He went wire to wire, winning by 4 3/4 lengths. On September 27 American Pharoah traveled to Santa Anita for the 8.5 furlong $300K Grade I Frontrunner Stakes. He went from flag fall to finish on the lead to win by 3 1/4 lengths. These two victories earned American Pharoah the Outstanding Two Year Old Male Eclipse Award for 2014. He was given some time off and resurfaced in the 8.5 furlong $750K Grade II Rebel Stakes at Oaklawn Park March 14, 2015. He again went wire to wire over a sloppy track to win by 6 1/4 lengths.
